Con motivo del 80 cumpleaños de Woody Allen, Natalio Grueso, amigo íntimo del cineasta, escribe un libro cómplice y personal sobre el genio neoyorquino, imprescindible para la inmensa legión de seguidores que tiene en todo el mundo. Woody Allen es una de las personalidades más importantes de la cultura de nuestro tiempo. Cineasta, dramaturgo y escritor, tras Chaplin y Groucho Marx, es el último de los grandes maestros de la comedia y la inteligencia aplicada al séptimo arte. Este libro nos muestra al genio neoyorquino en su faceta menos pública y nos invita a conocer un Woody más cercano e íntimo a través de testimonios exclusivos de quienes han tenido el privilegio de conocerlo personalmente y trabajar con él a lo largo de su carrera: desde su pasión temprana por la magia y el humor hasta sus filias y fobias sobre cine, música o literatura pasando por anécdotas inéditas de sus rodajes y sus estancias en España. Algunas frases de Woody Allen: «Mi cerebro es mi segundo órgano favorito.» «La última vez que estuve dentro de una mujer fue cuando visité la Estatua de la Libertad.» «En Beverly Hills no tiran la basura, la convierten en televisión.» «Odio la realidad, pero es el único sitio donde se puede comer un buen filete.» «Más que vivir en el corazón de la gente, me gustaría seguir viviendo en mi apartamento.» «Por alguna razón me aprecian más en Francia que aquí. Los subtítulos deben de ser realmente buenos.» «No puedo escuchar tanto Wagner, ¿sabes? Me entran ganas de invadir Polonia.» «No es que tenga miedo a morirme, es tan solo que no quiero estar allí cuando suceda.» «Me interesa el futuro porque es el lugar donde voy a pasar el resto de mi vida.»

‘Il cervello è il mio secondo organo preferito’: così afferma Woody Allen in uno dei suoi celebri aforismi. Del resto, la parola più usata dalle decine di persone intervistate per la stesura di questo libro, alle quali è stato chiesto di definire uno tra i più amati cineasti del mondo, è stata ‘genio’. Gente che ha lavorato con lui o ha avuto l’opportunità di conoscerlo molto da vicino, persone che parlano con cognizione di causa, anche se ovviamente Allen non è d’accordo: ‘Io un genio? Allora cosa sono Shakespeare, Mozart o Einstein? No, no, sono solo un comico di Brooklyn che nella vita ha avuto molta fortuna’. Natalio Grueso racconta della gentilezza e grande umiltà del maestro, che, superati gli ottant’anni, non smette di dedicarsi a ciò che più ama – il cinema, la scrittura e il jazz – e rifugge i red carpet, considerando i premi oggetti fatti per ‘prendere polvere’. Un grande genio comico che ha debuttato come ghostwriter e come cabarettista prima di diventare il riferimento della cinematografia del ventesimo e ventunesimo secolo, senza dimenticare le sue origini e i grandi maestri che lo hanno forgiato quando si infilava nei vecchi cinema della sua giovinezza per ammirare i capolavori di Bergman e del neorealismo. Una passione, questa, che condivide con l’autore a cui è legato da una ventennale amicizia, che ha avuto il privilegio di seguire in prima persona la sua storia personale e professionale. Ne nasce un ritratto assolutamente inedito, intimo, sulla sua carriera, le sue fobie, i suoi hobby – tra cui una poco conosciuta passione per la magia – e sul suo modo di lavorare e concepire la vita.

In the history of Western culture we find lists of saints, rosters of soldiers, catalogues of grotesque creatures or medicinal plants, and hordes of treasure. The poetics of lists can be found from Homer to Joyce, from the treasures of Gothic cathedrals to the fantastic landscapes of Bosch and cabinets of curiosities, until we get to Andy Warhol and Damien Hirst in the 20th century. This illustrated essay is accompanied by a literary anthology and a wide selection of works of art illustrating the texts presented.

Thomas Bernhard (1931-1989) has been hailed by Gabriel Josipovici as 'Austria's finest postwar writer' and by George Steiner as 'one of the masters of contemporary European fiction.' Faber Finds is proud to reissue a selection of four of Bernhard's finest novels. Wittgenstein's Nephew (1982) opens in 1967 as two men lie bedridden in separate wings of a Viennese hospital. The narrator, Thomas Bernhard, is stricken with a lung ailment; his friend Paul, nephew of Ludwig Wittgenstein, is suffering from one of his periodic bouts of madness. As their once-casual friendship quickens, these eccentric men begin to see in each other a possible antidote to their feelings of hopelessness and mortality, on the unexpected strength of what they hold in common. 'Furious, obsessive, scathing, absolutely hilarious and oddly beautiful.' Claire Messud, Salon 'A memento mori that approaches genius.' Richard Locke, Wall Street Journal

Woody Allen (b. 1935) is one of America's most idiosyncratic filmmakers, with an unparalleled output of nearly one film every year for over three decades. His movies are filled with rapid-fire one-liners, neurotic characters, anguished relationships, and old-time jazz music. Allen's vision of New York--whether in comedies or dramas--has shaped our perception of the city more than any other modern filmmaker. "On the screen," John Lahr wrote in the New Yorker in 1996, "Allen is a loser who makes much of his inadequacy; off-screen, he has created over the years the most wide-ranging oeuvre in American entertainment." Woody Allen: Interviews collects over twenty-five years of interviews with the director of Manhattan, Hannah and Her Sisters, Crimes and Misdemeanors, Bullets Over Broadway, and Annie Hall, for which he won an Oscar. The book's interviews reveal a serious director, often at odds with his onscreen persona as a lovable, slap-stick loser. Allen talks frankly about his rigorous work habits; his biggest artistic influences; the attention he devotes to acting, screenwriting, and directing; and how New York fuels his filmmaking. Along with discussing film techniques and styles, Allen opens up about his love of jazz, his Jewish heritage, and the scandal that arose when he left his longtime partner Mia Farrow for her adopted daughter. Including four interviews from European sources, three of which are now available in English for the first time, Woody Allen: Interviews is a treasure trove of conversations with one of America's most distinctive filmmakers. Robert E. Kapsis is professor of sociology at Queens College and is the author of Hitchcock: The Making of a Reputation. His work has appeared in the Village Voice, Variety, Journal of Popular Film and Video, and Cineaste and at the Museum of Modern Art. Kathie Coblentz is special collections cataloger at the New York Public Library. Kapsis and Coblentz coedited Clint Eastwood: Interviews (University Press of Mississippi).

DIV A tough Welshman, he was softened by the affections of a breathtakingly beautiful woman: she was a modern-day Cleopatra madly in love with her own Mark Antony. For quarter of a century, Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton were the king and queen of Hollywood. Yet their two marriages to each other represented much more than outlandish romance. Together, Elizabeth and Richard were a fascinating embodiment of the mores and transgressions of their time and even luminaries like Jacqueline Kennedy looked to them as a barometer of the culture. The enduring glamour, grandeur, drama and bravado embodied in the couple gave rise to the type of rabid gossip and wide-eyed adoration that are the staples of todayÕs media. Using brand-new research and interviews Ð including unique access to Taylor herself, the Burton family, and TaylorÕs extensive personal correspondence Ð this ultimate celebrity biography is the gripping real-life story of a fairy-tale couple whose lives were even grander and more outrageous than the epic films they made. /div

‘I’m going back to what I was twenty years ago. I’m riding across a terrain of buried curiosity, the adrenaline is starting to flow again, and the old obsessions are coming back: I want to start doing cocaine every day, I want to run after every female who passes, I want to smell the smells of Italy again, I want my old life back. It’s a bit late for all that, I know, but who gives a fuck? I want to die stark naked, drowned in a well of Ballantine’s, surrounded by whores. All this I want, suddenly, I want it very much indeed. But I hide it well.’ This is the story of Tony Pagoda, a hero of our time, a man of incredible energies and appetites with a dark secret in his past and a unique perspective on the world. 1980s Italy is Tony’s oyster. A charismatic singer, he is talented and successful, up to his neck in money, drugs and women, enjoying an extravagant lifestyle in Naples and Capri. But when life gets complicated, Tony decides it’s time for a change. While on tour, he disappears to Brazil and an existence free from excess, where all he has to worry about are the herculean cockroaches. But after eighteen years of humid Amazonian exile, somebody is willing to sign a giant cheque to bring Tony back to Italy. How will he face the temptations of his old habits and the new century? A huge bestseller in Italy, Everybody's Right is an extraordinary debut novel from the award-winning film director Paolo Sorrentino. It is a book about Italy and a book about the modern world; a book about Tony and a book about all of us. Through Tony’s irresistible voice Sorrentino illustrates his imaginative power and his incredible gifts for drama and satire.
